Future upgrades in the near future and other miscellaneous items...

Aluminum 1-pc driveshaft (my center link bearing's fried since the boot cracked just before my 60k mark and is making a very annoying racket)
Suspension for a street/Auto-X setup, to include watts link, sways (mainly the rear sucks), UCA/LCAs, springs, K and As, engine mounts, HD S/T mounts, D-specs, all with a mix of spherical/poly bushings to limit noise transmission but maintain compliance.
Engine to build 450hp to wheels with all necessary tuning/modification...starting with cams/valvetrain upgrade.
Clutch upgrade w/resurfaced--if necessary, replaced--steel flywheel
Replaced axle bearings yesterday, not too bad. 0.5 quarts capacity additon with the girdled cover. Walk-through with pictures coming soon!

welcome! lose those "bug shields" on your drivers/passengers windows and itll look amazing :D
Don't worry, they're gone. Cracked upon install, and waited until it pissed me off enough to remove 'em. Had a hell of a time removing and my paint suffered the brunt of it...left some glue residue IN the paint/clear. Can't even polish it out. Oh, well. They were to allow the cracked window for keeping temperatures down inside. My car suffered some serious leather drying while I was in the desert after purchase, so I was trying to do everything I could to milk them back to something of a shine. The individuals taking care of my car let it sit in the sun, uncovered, and unprotected for 3+ months...without a bath the whole time, either.

Yeah, permanent wrinkles/rough spots in my leather now. I'll likely have it replaced once the performance mods are done. Not too bad, but definitely noticeable. I was PISSED when I saw my NEW CAR in that shape.
